The good news is that I finally fired Pro Computer Gambler, so now I can get back to rebuilding my bankroll. I should thank him for doing what he did. I wish he would've done it much sooner. It would've saved me quite a bit of money.
Nevertheless, I still had a losing week. It would've been a lot worse if I had stayed with Pro Computer Gambler, as he continued to have another bad losing week, but unfortunately, my other systems and handicappers had losing weeks, too.
I made a total of 147 bets. I went 68-77, giving me a 46.9% win rate. I put a total of $2,407 into action, and made a net loss of -$157.21, producing a -6.53% yield.
I did the best in the NHL, and I did the worst in MLB. I expect things to start changing a lot, now that I've canned Pro Computer Gambler.
I made the most money at BetDSI, while I lost the most money at Pinnacle. I made most of my bets at BetOnline last week.
I had 6 bets total for my free pick system, and I went 3-3, giving me a 50% win rate. I put a total of $104 into action, and I made a net profit of $3.39, producing a 3.26% yield.
I had 25 bets for my live betting system, and went going 12-13, giving me a 48% win rate. I put a total of $397 into action, and I made a net loss of -$36.98, producing a -9.31% yield.
There were 5 picks, and they went 1-4, giving me a 20% win rate. I put a total of $70 into action, and I made a net loss of -$22.40, producing a -32% yield.
Last week, there were 4 picks, and they went 3-1, giving me a 75% win rate. I put a total of $57 into action, and made a net profit of $3.70, producing a 6.49% yield.
Thank God that this is the last week I'll have to make an update for Pro Computer Gambler, now that I've fired him.
There were 15 picks, and he went 4-11, giving me a 26.7% win rate. I put a total of $299 into action, and made a net loss of -$116.94, producing a -39.11% yield.
To be honest, I can't see myself sticking with The Sports Geek much too longer, either. It doesn't seem like a profitable site, even though the picks were profitable this week. It could just be variance at play, so I'm going to stick it out for a bit longer. The picks are free, anyway.
They had 23 picks, going 12-9, giving me a 57.1% win rate. I put a total of $356 into action, and made a net profit of $58.47, producing a 16.42% yield.
Looks like none of my MLB handicappers had a good first week, including Guillermo.
He had 16 picks, and he went 6-10, giving me a 37.5% win rate. I put a total of $368 into action, and made a net loss of -$91.21, producing a -24.79% yield.
I'm glad that I finally added in Sports Insights. They have a great product, which quickly and easily lets you find the best odds offered for your bet, and I upgraded to the Best Bets picks, as well. My subscription has just started, but it's off to an absolutely great start.
There were 29 picks, and they went 17-12, giving me a 58.6% win rate. I put a total of $457 into action, and made a net profit of $85.29, producing an 18.66% yield.
Since I started back on December 5, 2016, I have made a total of 1,434 bets. My total record is 755-657, giving me a 53.5% win rate.
I have put a total of $58,348 into action, and have a made a net profit of $911.37, producing a 1.56% ROI. My Return on Capital is 39.1%, which is quite impressive.
The average odds of my bets are -102, and my average bet size is risking $39.77.
I have the most profit in the NBA, and NHL has produced the worst return for me.
I made the most money placing my bets at BetOnline, and I've lost the most money at 5Dimes. I've made the most of my bets at BetOnline, with Pinnacle coming in 2nd.
As for the individual system/handicapper results:

I really like doing this weekly update, especially seeing the long-term numbers for each handicapper and system. It's easy to get the numbers distorted when you just look at things on a weekly or monthly basis. But when you see the long-term numbers, it really puts things into perspective.
I have been at this for 133 days now. That's an average of 10.8 bets per day. My average daily profit currently sits at $6.85, which is an average monthly profit of $205.57.
